Ever since he was a child, Gérard Lapointe has always been fascinated by art. This attraction first led him to make use of his talent as a draughtsman. However, he quickly mastered this technique and decided to apply his creativity to painting, which he felt was a more suited medium to express his artistic aspirations. His works are easily recognizable by the style in which he translates colour to give new life and added beauty to his pictoral world. His paintings, full of colour and vigor, nonetheless radiate charm, poetry and serenity, which are inspired by the extraordinary beauty of the changing seasons.
Always in search of excellence, Lapointe relentlessly works at improving and enriching his art and skills. He rarely stops experimenting, searching or reading up on special painting techniques. He believes painting is a medium through which his soul goes through its creative process. His intention is to appeal to our minds by using the power of image and colour and thus trigger off our emotions.
Gerard Lapointe currently resides and paints in the picturesque Charlevoix region of Quebec.
